PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has landed himself in hot water. After appearing to accidentally send a racist WhatsApp to Sky Germany pundit Dennis Aogo, the former Gunners stopper has been sacked by Hertha Berlin where he served as an advisor to the supervisory board. During Sky Germany's coverage of the Champions League semi-final second leg clash between Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, for which Aogo covered, Lehmann sent the pundit a WhatsApp, likely for someone else, asking if he was the broadcaster's "token black man". His message read: "Ist dennis eigentlich euer qotenschwarzer? [sic]". Which translates to: "Is Dennis basically your token black guy?"
